Staying within the speed limit is a key part of staying safe. But when driving on unfamiliar roads, it’s not always clear how fast you can go. One surefire way of staying on top of speed limits is with a safety camera locator. Not only do they warn you of speed cameras or mobile traps, but many display a correct speed limit, too. We put eight to the test.
It's essential for a safety camera locator to be accurate, so locating cams precisely was key, while bonus marks were awarded to those that could correctly alert you to mobile sites. Marks were also given to those that displayed the speed limit of the road at all times, and it was crucial to get sufficient notice of an upcoming cam. Prices for the two standalone units are RRPs.
Cheetah's C50 was simple yet worked well, and is our winner. The Road Pilot Mobile app gives a comprehensive level of detail and Cyclops’ new app is also worthy of a podium place.
